At the upcoming annual conference of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, USA, Siemens will introduce a new angiography system optimized for a broad clinical utilization. Artis one is designed for routine interventions, which represent the majority of angiographic procedures. Energy consumption with the new system is up to 20 percent lower than with Artis zee floor.
The new universal angiography system Artis one comes with a new on-screen menu which allows the physician to navigate directly using the heads-up display. All information about the procedure is thus kept right in front of the operator’s eyes. The comfortable 30 inch display size delivers images up to 90 percent larger than conventional 19 inch monitors.
Thousands of angiographic procedures are performed each day worldwide. On the one hand, these include treatment of highly complex cases requiring a high degree of tailoring of the angiography lab's configuration. On the other hand, there are many routine interventions, which represent the clear majority of cases. These include, for example, revascularizations of peripheral arterial or venous occlusions, functional tests of dialysis shunts (surgical vascular connections between arteries and veins) in patients with kidney failure or of implanted ports in tumor patients. Diagnostic angiographies of narrowed coronary arteries (coronary stenosis) and their treatment or pacemaker implantations are also established routine procedures. Siemens Healthcare developed Artis one to support all of these interventions.Extremely flexible with low space requirement of just 25 square meters
Buttons on the table side console are tactile so that they can be easily operated even under the sterile covering. The on-screen menu allows the physician to navigate directly using the heads-up display. All information about the procedure is thus kept right in front of the operator's eyes. The comfortable 30 inch display size delivers images up to 90 percent larger than conventional 19 inch monitors.Premium applications, powerful x-ray tube
By using 20 percent less energy than Artis zee floor, Artis one also helps reducing operational costs. This is mainly achieved through the use of components manufactured by Siemens for the field of industry automation.
According to the clinical application, Artis one is available in different configurations tailored to fit a broad range of clinical requirements.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
